    Default Wow...yet another Deckel like mill I was unaware of.... from Spinner in Germany...

    Having owned a Spinner turning center I was well aware of the company but until today I had no idea they offered Deckel style mills. Amazing there must be enough demand for new Thiel style mills in 2019 in Europe to justify production. Especially bizarre that the smallest one looks more like a first or second generation FP1 rather than the later Activ machines.

    Spinner has several very interesting machines but they have no dealer in the US, I dont think they try to compete here. There was a company in SC but they went belly up years ago.

    Looks great Wow...yet another Deckel like mill I was unaware of.... from Spinner in Germany...

    Didn't know of a mill in that size, with that name

    Several things on that mill are similar to my 1960 prvomajska alg100

    I've seen their single lip cutter grinders around up here. Nice solid looking little machines.

    That's a Prvomajska ALG100 B. B is for round rpm/feed selectors and a bit larger travels than the previous model. (quite more than an FP1 as well).
    There is the Prvomajska logo in front of the Z screw.

    (an ALG100 was my first mill, really nice machine)

    Interesting...

    (isn't it strange that they didn't opt for a better face mill, better steel or just better speed/feed combination in order to get a shiny finish on that cut for the demo video?? )

    Moving briefly OT the Saeilo folk showing off their Deckel clone in the YouTube video in the link from zephyrous also have a rather neat variant on the age old "keep a drill vice under control" theme. Made a bit crude but clearly effective.

    YouTube

    Basically put the vice on a base with a rectangular cut out underneath and slide it along a matching bar pivoted from one side of the machine table. Simples and looks effective but I'd make the pivot point adjustable too.

    Agree with thang that I'd want a bit more generalc are and polish from folk before buying a machine.
